All of our extensive knowledge about birds has come from lbird-watching,* Vfe have learned something of the importance of birds in the world of wild life and know how they help control the many insects that plague us.M —BIRDS (A Golden Nature Guide) to to to to to to to to to tototototototototototototototototototo^tototototototototototowtototototototototototo Published by the Ornithology Group,Outdoor Nature Club, Houston,Texas "—^ — ■ *** i-+ »«mw^» ii— » m ii i—i^ i mi m* M»wi ii >i .^w»-■■ ,—n ■■■ i i i iniii M**J*Ciii in i ■ ■■ ■ m, tmim.mmm.-mmm, ■ ■—.■ —».. m imw in »ni rn "mi P ■ '-mmmm ■ mm. . p i ■■■! mm mm* i ^iwwi ■■■ mii ■ »■■■ .■»■■■■■! ■ ■■■ ■iwiii^imi ~ ii«hm ■ FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES m- -tm I ii. i ii r- - ... ■ ■ . , , . .. . , , i , amm , i mmm nw 11 ■ II ■ ■ III I Ii II I ■ I - I II I ■■ March 10 . ..

Make plans now to attend this very important meeting. tt it « # ORNITHOLOGY GROU T> r? ru& >0RTS Field Trip - January 30 This "expedition" to the Lake Houston area was composed of 18 birders. Time of departure from Buffalo Stadium was 7:15 A.M. and the first stop, along Ralston Road (1.2 mile S. of Garrett Rd.) , produced a close-up view of an American Bittern at the side of the road. The whole group watched it for several minutes as it made its way slowly and deliberately along the roadside ditch and then—still slowly and deliberately—into a nearby wooded area. The next highlight for the day was the appearance of at least 3 Leconte *s Sparrows, after much diligent searching spearheaded by Edna Miner, at the same site (2/l0 mile N of Garrett Road, along Pumping Station Road) at which some 25 of the birds were seen by Mrs* Miner1 s Christmas Count party January 2. At this point six species of sparrows and an equal variety of woodpeckers (new record for Ye Ed.) had been recorded by the party. A pair of Vermilion Flycatchers were seen at the Sheldon Reservoir area and a third one at Buckhorn Lake en route to Jimmy Murray1s summer home along the San Jacinto River. Here the group, along with Jimmy Murray's wife Johnnie and Alice Filkins (they were spending the day at the cottage), took time out for a noon-day picnic* Afterwards, an intense search for the Gray-cheeked Thrush recorded on the premises on the Jan. 2 Christmas Count turned up nothing but a Hermit Thrush—at first hopefully thought to be the Gray --cheeked.
